nothing wrong with the mileage...just means its been used...but if you want real feedback...then offer up more info that you should already know...like decent $$$ how much. How many owners...where's it been? do you know the current owner...what mods may have been done to it, and which ones still exist? What is the service history? Has it been involved in any accident..if what damage? Was it a work truck or daily driver...sounds like work truck.

electrod- These trucks are expensive to operate and prone to leave you stranded. I LOVE my 2005 YELLOW powerstroke but i cuss at the repairs sometimes. Call the dealer and ask how much for the SCT fitting repair, a injector replacement, FIMC replacement, head gasket replacement and a EGR replacement. Those are all big ticket repairs in my book and something that should not fail for at least 250k miles on a diesel. I have done all but the headgaskets on my truck over the last 40k or a year or so. The repairs are not that difficult but just a pain. I plan on keeping my truck for at least another 10 years i hope. If i was in the market for a new truck i would think hard about a 2003 with the 7.3 or a 2008 with the 6.4. All trucks will have some issues but these 6.0's seem to have more than there share. My mileage sucks (lifted and 35 inch tires) but i did not care about that when i bought it, i wanted the bad *** diesel. My truck now has 140k on it and the front end needs some work. I STILL LOVE MY truck but i am hardheaded. If you plan on adding more power you can make more with a dodge or chevy cheaper. IMO the Ford powerstroke is the best looking truck out there wether it runs or not.
